Sri Lanka’s Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says he accepts the recent announcement of Buddhist prelates and will take steps to set up a council to dispel the suspicions and misconceptions among religions and build religious reconciliation. The premier told a function in Baddegama recently that a religious reconciliation council will be established under the leadership of all religious leaders. The main objective of this programme is to reconcile religions and communities, he added. Wickremesinghe noted that whatever religious views they hold, everyone should have the right to practice their religion freely.
